We (Michael and Tom) have both taught across the Middle Years at schools around Australia including in the Northern Territory, Victoria and New South Wales. We have taught English, History, Geography and Legal Studies to a broad variety of Australian students, whose literacy levels and socio-economic statuses range dramatically. As educators, we are passionate about helping every child to reach their full potential, regardless of their race, gender or postcode. Michael currently teaches in Rosebery (NT) and Tom teaches at Port Macquarie (NSW).
We are absolutely convinced that well-sequenced, logical and engaging material, presented with love, compassion and dedication can give any child the skills they need to be successful in our changing 21st century world. Our goal is to help teachers by preparing rigorous, evidence-based resources so that they can focus on showing these values in the classroom.
